Iranian legislator slams UN monitor as Mossad agent

An Iranian legislator has slammed Ahmed Shaheed, the Moldavian diplomat who was designated by the United Nations 'human rights council' as special rapporteur on the state of human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran, calling Shaheed a Mossad agent.
"All fair and independent human rights bodies are well aware that Shaheed works as an agent for the Zionist regime and also the CIA," Rapporteur of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini told reporters on Saturday.
He stressed that Iran is quite familiar with Shaheedˈs character.
"The extension of Shaheedˈs mission by the UN Human Rights Council serves to gain time to level yet more accusations again Iran," he added.
Naqavi Hosseini said that Shaheed compiles his false reports upon orders he receives from the Mossad and CIA.
"Shaheed is the only one among these rapporteurs who repeatedly gets reinstated every time his time of service ends," he said.
In relevant remarks on Saturday, Iranian Envoy to the UN offices in Geneva Mohsen Naziri Asl blasted Ahmed Shaheed for his baseless allegations against Tehran.
"Those behind the draft resolution against Iran's human rights record were to deepen a rift among countries and consequently, impose their norms upon others," Naziri Asl said, addressing the 25th meeting of the UN Human Rights Council in the Swiss city of Geneva.
Naziri-Asl pointed to the drafting of the anti-Iran resolution as a dangerous and concerning act, and said, "The resolution would encourage competition instead of cooperation and weaken the basic principles of the international body."
He added that Iran's positive achievements in the field of human rights resulted from the country's constructive interaction with the international community were ignored in the draft resolution.
“In reality the claim by the main sponsors of this resolution regarding human rights advocacy has proved to be a myth, as they have, in numerous occasions, put on display their fully politicized approach to human rights issues,” Naziri Asl said.
